Types of Garage Door Openers

No matter if you’ve lived in your home for 2 weeks, or 20 years, you may not be aware that there are different kinds of garage door openers. Depending on the style, the size, and the weight of your garage door, the type of opener you have could be different from your neighbor. If you don’t have a garage and you’re planning on adding one to your home, you should give Bob’s Advance Garage Doors a call!
We can help you pick out the perfect garage door opener based on your budget, the size of your garage, and the ease of use you want. After we determine the best type of garage door opener for you, we will get to installing and pairing it!
Now, let’s discuss the common type of garage door openers there are available to you and each of their benefits.

The 4 Common Types of Garage Door Openers

1.    Chain drive
This kind of garage door opener is the most commonly used type. This is because it’s the most affordable option while also being the most dependable option – it’s hard to get both affordability and dependability when it comes to anything for your home these days. Chain drive garage door openers are reliable especially if you have heavy, large garage doors. The only downside is that this type of opener tends to be louder when being opened or closed.

2.    Belt drive
While belt drive openers are similar to chain drives in the way they function and their reliability, but a belt drive is much quieter than a chain drive. So if you have a family and little kids that go to sleep before someone else gets home, this is something to consider when choosing the best garage door opener for you. These tend to be more expensive than a chain drive, but if you don’t mind spending a little extra and getting a quieter garage door opener, this is the best option for you.

3.    Screw drive
This kind of garage door opener is faster and quieter than the first two options, but they are best suited for lightweight or single-car garage doors. If you have a heavy, large garage door, this opener won’t work well for you because the screws and gears will wear down quickly from the weight. If you have a single-car garage or a detached one-car garage, this is a great option for you!

4.    Wall mount
Also referred to as jackshaft or direct-drive openers, a wall mount opener is ideal when there is little to no space for an overhead garage door opener. This opener uses a system of pulleys and cables to raise and lower your garage door. Wall mount openers are the quietest option for garage door openers, and they are super dependable. Depending on what you need, they may be close in price to a belt-drive, but make sure to ask Bob’s Advance Garage Doors which option is best for you!
